The other day I shared a blog post about a star card I made with Masquepen Masking Fluid.  Here is another card I made with the same tool and technique.  After drawing my white design with the masking fluid, I inked over it with sponge daubers and a few different colored ink pads.  Using my Cuttlebug machine, I cut out a few butterfly shapes with a Stampin’ Up! Sizzix die and lightly inked over the embossed critters.  I stamped the corner edge with a flourish, rubbed away the masking fluid, attached the butterflies with glue dots and then bent their wings upwards.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
